The importance of a bridal session lies in its simplicity: the bride and her photographer don't have to worry about guests waiting in the ceremony area or if the hairdresser is running an hour late. It's just a woman in love wearing the most beautiful dress of her life as she has those fleeting moments as a bride captured forever.
